Click to preview WARMLITE: Still Controversial After All These Years pocket and trade book

Here's a small book about that most notorious of the early gear pioneers. Jack Stephenson, an aerospace engineer by trade, began experimenting with high-tech, super-lightweight packs, tents and sleeping bags in the late 1950s. His designs and his catalogs were often controversial. His company is still at it in 2013, a small custom company based in New Hampshire. This book is different than my previous four books. This one is smaller, shorter, has only a few images, and is all in black & white. It's also a great deal less expensive. Its content is mostly based on interviews I did with Mr. Stephenson, Wayne Gregory and others during the mid-late 1990s.


About the Author

My FIVE Blurb books combine many of my passions. The lure of beautiful, innovative outdoor gear drove me into the history of the industry and its colorful founders. The fun was in the researching, writing, photographing, and tracking down mysteries. This is the kind of work I enjoy the most.
